memories of England

Pin It Now!
"Grazing in Stratford-Upon-Avon"

Here's something a little different for me.  This is a painting a did the other day to donate for a fundraising auction.

The scene is from a photo I snapped when I visited England in the summer of 2011.  This shot was in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare's hometown.

The painting is just 8 x 10" and done in acrylic.  Tried to keep it loose and not "noodle around" with it too much, as my CSUF plein-air painting instructor, Cliff Cramp, used to say :)

I like the color, and the dreamy feeling.

I like the saturated color and dreamy feeling.

Nice! I love Cliff's work as well. He really cranks out the digi-paintings.

It makes me want to visit England, I think you got the pastoral feel and the peace of so much of their landscape.

It makes me want to visit England again. I think you captured the pastoral feel, the peace of so much of their landscapes.

Thanks, Jen, Sean & Jonalyn!
I have another one in the works, but it's a bit more complicated so it's taking me longer. Hopefully I'll be posting that as well.
